I've had my results back today. The X-ray was clear and the blood markers were normal.

I got an A in Human Biology and a B in Chemistry.

My B is being challenged by my lecturer because I got 70%, the threshold for an A, but I didn't get one while my lab partner got 1% more than me and got an A.

Strange one, but we'll see what happens. Starting Applied Science at the end of August, should be good.

Lad, I'm >>5466 and I'm 27. I didn't get back into education until I was 25 and had to do National 5s with all the 16 year olds to get into the Access course to get those As, which was shit but worth it in the end.

There was a women on the course who was 38 as well and she got two Bs.

It is never too late and you don't even have to pay for it until you are heading to Uni/doing a HNC/HND, etc.

I miss having a purpose and trying to work towards something. Being a NEET is draining. I should just join the army come September. This is numbing.

Stop it.

That's astounding. What are your other degrees? Why can't you find work with them? Why don't you just do a masters?

Surely after you've had to quit your second degree it would be the time to decide whether university is the route for you. It would take some exceptional personal circumstances to justify a 3rd attempt at a degree.

Started degrees in chemistry and biology, finished neither.
I've done lots of thinking about it, and it basically required a few breakdowns and a bit of therapy to realise I was doing the wrong thing. Pursuing subjects I was good at at school but found boring, because parental pressure to do science to get a good job to get rich. Doing something more aligned to my interests now, so I'm confident this is the right route.

Only had one choice as my college was partnered with the university and wanted to finish off my foundation degree and get full honours.

After seeing the rankings table, my uni isn't particularly brilliant. Not even in the top 50. I shouldn't be surprised I got a distinction, I mean I believe I'm not that clever and that grade must not be all that impressive.

Was considering doing a Masters if I do well on the honours but I wouldn't know the first thing about post grad funding. Student finance weren't fond of funding my honours, I imagine post grad funding organizations are a little more stingy than SFE.

If your uni course allows you to do an integrated Masters (i.e where you stay at the same place and study for an extra year) then funding is piss-easy - just tell your LEA you need funding for 4 years not 3. Though if you thought this was a possibility you'd have been better off getting 4 year funding right off the bat. An integrated Masters isn't post-grad because you don't graduate until the end of four years.

Unfortunately I have no idea how funding works if you want to take a Masters at a different university. All I know is that in some areas it is possible to go straight from a Bachelors to a PhD where funding is more about finding the right supervisor.

>undiagnosed sleep disorder.

I'd be interested to hear more - what were the symptoms and how did you get it diagnosed?

I've missed a lot of lectures due to being unable to get out of bed, or because I have labs straight after and taking an hour's kip first is the only way I can be sure not to cause a nuclear meltdown. I'm sure that most people will read this and just think 'bloody lazy stoodents' but it's not like I spend a lot of time out on the piss, I'd be lucky to go out even once a week.

I kinda realised that this is getting beyond normal recently where I have slept for the recommended 8 hours bang on and still felt knackered the entire day.

Fortunately our lectures aren't particularly helpful but it still gets me down how drained I get. The problem is I'm not sure what a GP or anyone can do to help - I don't want to have to take sleeping pills every night. Maybe some medical grade cocaine in place of my morning coffee would help...

Worth going to the GP to check it's not a symptom of something bigger. Lack of energy and difficulty getting out of bed is a sign of depression, or it could be something like anaemia.

As someone who is realising the benefits of temazepam to help with actual insomnia, I'd recommend you get to your GP. If your sleep hygiene is good, your lifestyle exemplary (exercise, water, non-smoker, balanced and healthy diet, the whole shebang) and you're still having problems feeling rested enough to tackle life it's worth discussing with a doc.

My lack of energy is entirely down to the fact that I cannot fall asleep easily, or stay asleep no matter how much I might want to. I am so very tired all the time and it makes having a life difficult - so I can very much relate to your situation. Fix what you can first in regards to your sleep schedule and overall health, then go talk to a professional.

They prescribe temazepam for insomnia?

If you're tired during the day it's likely because of the effects of the GABAnergic activity of that drug.

I'm no doctor, but I seem to remember reading that alcohol and benzos can induce sleep, but reduce the quality of it (something to do with the phases)

Ask about melatonin, it promotes sleep via regulation of the circadian rhythm. This can also positively effect a reduction in depression and/or seasonal affective disorder symptoms if they are comorbid.

Yeah, I'll try and see if doing more exercise helps, it certainly improves my mood anyway. Seems a bit counter intuitive to regularly make myself physically tired to stop feeling so tired but the human body is a strange thing.

I can say this now while the weather is nice but convincing myself to go into a gym in winter won't be so easy.
